You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Using Ubuntu 9.04 x64, x32. I don't know how where to read samba version.
Samba is installed, works OK.

When Ubuntu is started:
     smbclient -L localhost -U% 
shows all the shares I configured in smb.conf
     smbclient -L -U% 
returns the error message: failed (Error NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED). NOTE: the IP is the IP of the machine itself (not a remote machine).

If I run manually sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
Then samba is working OK. This bug occurs on all machines, in spite the fact that samba service is started in Administration / Services (and also via the rcconf tool).

samba service must start and be responsive to remote access (of the
local LAN) automatically and without requiring the manual restart.
